Curbside Recycling

Republic Services

Curbside Recycling photoYour residential curbside recycling provider is Republic Services. With recycling services from Republic Services, you are able to recycle more items, bringing the City of Arden Hills closer to a zero-waste community.

Recycling is a city-wide service. There is no need to sign up—just wheel your recycling cart to the curb on the proper day and Republic Services will do the rest. All of your recycling can go in one cart. It is a single-stream collection. Recycling should not be bagged. Simply dump your recyclables into the cart.
